TRANSGENDER VICTORY
Transgender was removed from the list of mental disorders on 1 January 2017 thus making Denmark the first country in the world to no longer define being transgender as a mental illness.

PRIDE RECORD
Copenhagen Pride broke all records once again with around 300,000 people attending the annual Copenhagen Pride Week and more than 30,000 paradegoers.

WORLDPRIDE
Copenhagen Pride won the bid to host WorldPride in the Danish capital in 2021.
In Spring 2018 Pan Idræt will bid to host EuroGames. The joint event will go by the name Copenhagen 2021 and take place from 12. — 22.
August.

GESTEN PRIDE
The people in the village of Gesten in Jutland rose against a local right-wing politician who publicly referred to homosexuals as “deviants”. Anni Grimm, the politician in question, also criticised the LGBT+ communities’ need for prides and parades, and her comments were not only met by a gigantic shitstorm but also by the enterprising citizens from Gesten who quickly organised Gesten Pride as a protest. Gesten Pride took place on August 26 and attracted around 1,000 guests.
